versed in local distributive generation, the dynamics of financing clean energy and clean energy over the next year so we can take the build out work that is looking promising and realizing for reasons for saving the planet and economics that we must do this local build out. it's not really something that we can debate. we need -- so whatever you do with these positions we would hope that you still end up with two positions and one position could be carefully dedicated to somebody with a lot of expertise on local distributive renewable and generation and efficiency so they can help us dive in with sf puc and make sure we're getting the sf puc hour enterprise to push the envelope on this issue and crucial to the planet, crucial to jobs. you have heard us say that many times and i would concur with freeing up the executive officer. i think we saw when mr. fried was doing good and important work on rank choice voting he had one hand tied behind his back and nice for more flexibility to be there so those are my comments. >> thank you. is there any other public comment? >> hi commissi
sort of a new solar energy source or somebody wanted to tap in this in this case it's north star solar energy, * what is the problem that gets disrupted. they're feeding into our system, our transmission line to create that even level of energy, that creates a problem? is that what happens? >> if it's out of phase with our electricity delivery, if it's a spike in energy, any one of those things can actually adversely affect the delivery system and cause failures that were totally unanticipated. it's not that the energy is bad. it has to be lined up exactly with the existing energy sources so that there is not frankly a widespread blackout as a result of some change in phase or wavelength of what they provided into the system. >> so, the mitigation money is really intended to make sure we sure up our transmission lines to deal with those surges just to make sure we don't have widespread blackouts or others in our genesis at theverctiontion, correct? >> that's correct. >> okay. and other entities are receiving this kind of mitigation also? >> yes. electric utilities, existing electric u
is change the 100% 2020 goal to locally produced energy from facilities beyond that date. >> thank you. next speaker please. >> hello commissioners. my name is paul congressmanus and part of. >> >> bon hundred% solar. there is a way to get to one heard% -- 100% and ignored in this country by the media so you might not have heard of it. it's a solar payment policy. it requires pg&e to pay 54 cents kilowatt hour to homeowners that put panels on their roo. i know a hundred people in this town that are generating surplus and pg&e is basically stealing this surplus energy at the rate pg&e is paying, so it's simply a policy that the mayor can institute under executive powers, and get around pg&e that way. in germany it's created 400,000 new jobs. it's created $4 billion in cash flow through the economy and making the german economy the strongest in europe and it's the -- it basically is a policy that pays the homeowners so it makes investing in solar attractive to homeowners. right now it's not attractive to put a hundred solar panels on your roof, but under this policy germany has
for their work. it is in many respects thankless work. a lot of time and energy goes into it and you wouldn't be doing it unless you had the commitment and the passion. and is that is greatly appreciated and i'm especially concerned to make sure that we have members of that committee that reflect the diversity of the city. especially when it comes to being able to address the language needs of certain communities. i think that is very, very important. thank you again for your work and your service. >> thank you. i want to thank mr. wooten and mr. lacay yo for being here today. i think that there is some really good thoughts and suggestions and officer the next two weeks, we'll set up a meet and include supervisor campos' office as well. we'll prioritize the vacancies and look for spanish speakers, because i know that takes up a significant portion of our shelter community. i heard from folks about the unfunded mandate and there were things put forward in having real reforms in our shelter system. i think there are improvements that have been made, but there continues to be much move more

to get up to paige from the panhandle it's like a 12% grade. to put that in terms of energy expended it's about four times the amount of effort to get up that 12% grade as it would be to go down oak street as you normally would. so people said it's out of the way, it's slower, it's taxing on what's already a lot of people do a long commute from the west down to downtown. so it just was not a desirable route for people who ride a bike. some people choose to go that way. some people prefer to ride in mixed traffic on those streets, you know, streets and stop signs but more people would prefer to ride in a separate facility on oak and fell and that they would prefer traffic signals as opposed to the stop signs and on the flattest route. >> supervisor olague: how does this relate to the bike plan. is there any reference to some of these projects? >> actually the planning department could probably speak better to that. >> to answers your question, supervisor olague, the oak street introduction of a new bike lane on oak street was included as a long-term improvement project in the bike lane,
